My husband just had a procedure for cervical stenosis replacing a vertebra with a titanium disk. I'm not sure what the procedure is called. It was early on Thursday morning. He felt great immediately after. All the pain was gone. It seemed like a miracle. He didn't sleep the rest of Thursday or that night. Last night he did go to sleep but he woke up about 3:00 a.m. and said the pain in his arm [that he had before the surgery] had returned. He decided to go back to sleep and see how it feels in the morning. Now it's the morning and it not only still hurts but he could barely move around in the bed. What's going on???? I told him we have to call the doctor but he doesn't want to yet, he thinks it's too early, so I gave him a deadline of 10:00 [it's about 9:00 right now].
